Enjoyed the opportunity to discuss our upcoming MOOC on a Jumpstart podcast moderated by Samantha Fryberger with Lisa Delp, the former executive director of the Ohio Third Frontier program and Nevine Dakroury, the director of the FSVC office in Egypt (via phone). We discuss the lessons we have learned to date in Northeast Ohio and how our attempts to creatively intervene to support entrepreneurship through government and donor support may be relevant in other transitioning economies around the world such as Egypt. It was great to hear from Nevine about what is happening with entrepreneurship in Egypt and we are really excited to hear from our participants in the MOOC about the unique successes and challenges in their own communities around supporting entrepreneurship.
The podcast is available in the iTunes library or you can stream it from the website. I am a big fan of Jumpstart’s other podcasts on entrepreneurship was thrilled they decided to devote one to our MOOC!
